Title: ANODAL STIMULATION DETECTION AND AVOIDANCE
Abstract:
Cardiac resynchronization therapy is delivered to a heart using an extended bipolar electrode configuration in accordance with programmed pacing parameters including a non-zero intraventricular delay. The extended bipolar electrode configuration comprises a left ventricular electrode defining a cathode of the extended bipolar electrode configuration and a right ventricular electrode defining an anode of the extended bipolar electrode configuration. A pace pulse is delivered to the left ventricular electrode and anodal stimulation of the right ventricle is detected based on the sensed response to the pace pulse.
